Oil India Ltd (OIL) is India's second-largest national oil and gas business and a Navratna company. It is a government-owned firm under the administrative jurisdiction of the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas. Oil India Limited (OIL) reported a standalone operating profit of Rs. 1,958 crore in Q4FY22, rising 54.5 per cent year over year. For the quarter and financial year ended 31st March 2022, the company's net profit was 1,630.01 crore, compared to 847.56 crore in the same period previous year. The company also declared its highest-ever profit of 3,887.31 crore for the whole fiscal year 2021-22, up from 1,741.59 crore the previous year.

Turnover increased by 27% in the fourth quarter to 4,972.91 crore, and by 55% in the fiscal year to 16,427.65 crore. Oil India's revenue from operations in March 2022 was 4,478.61 crore, up 73.62 percent from 2,579.50 crore in March 2021, while the company's EPS climbed to Rs. 15.03 from Rs. 7.82 in March 2021. According to the brokerage firm Sharekhan, the company’s operational performance was mixed with in line with crude oil realisation of $98.1/ bbl (up 24.8% q-o-q) while oil sales volumes of 0.73 mmt (up 0.8% q-o-q). However, gas sales volume disappointed sharply with a 11.9% q-o-q decline to 0.56 bcm. Oil division’s EBIT grew strongly by 74.2% q-o-q to Rs. 2,089 crore reflecting the benefit of higher oil prices and gas EBIT turned positive to Rs. 77 crore (versus EBIT loss of Rs. 108 crore in Q3FY22), as per the brokerage.

The brokerage has said in a report that “The recent sharp surge in crude oil prices and expectation of further steep hike in domestic gas prices from October 2022 would drive an 11% CAGR in OIL’s standalone PAT over FY2022-FY2024E and improve RoE to 14.3%. Moreover, the recent stake increase in Numaligarh Refinery Ltd (NRL) could create long term value for OIL. Hence, we maintain a Buy rating with an unchanged SoTP-based PT of Rs. 290."

The stock is trading at 3.5x its FY2023E EPS (including earnings contribution from NRL). Likely windfall tax on upstream PSUs or LPG subsidy burden is key risk our earnings and valuation, says Sharekhan. The company's Board of Directors has also recommended a final dividend of Rs. 5/- per share, or 50%, for the fiscal year 2021-22, subject to shareholder approval at the next Annual General Meeting (AGM). The company's dividend yield for the financial year 2021-22 is 6.40 percent. The stock closed today at 246 in the market, up 3.17 percent from yesterday's close of 238.45.
